summer of loveSummer of Love is a new one-day festival taking place on Saturday 12th September 2015 at Undegun Arts Space, Wrexham.

The event is a brand new festival promising visitors “unique audio visual immersive experience”, the festival organisers have recruited a bespoke line up of fringe / experimental and psychedelic music makers to perform within the ‘environment’ created by a group of specially commissioned artists. Described as ‘awakening the analogue spectre of a distant past’ the art group ‘DATAMOSH’ will create a ‘fully immersive experience’ within both floors of the host venue – using light, video projection, giant sculpture and actors, the artists promise an experience for visitors which will leave the outside world seeming a million miles away once the threshold is crossed.

HGPOSTER2015WEBAfter a string of International Exhibitions Wrexham’s pop-up Gallery Undegun, is turning the spotlight on North Wales home-grown talent, as part of a unique project with Helfa Gelf/Art Trail. The month long celebration of Welsh Art invites the public not only to come along and see the work of our most creative residents at the gallery but also to take a tour across the region to see where the artists live and work.
This September Undegun will be showcasing work from a large group of artists taking part in Wales’ biggest Open Studios art trail, Helfa Gelf 2015. Now in its 10th year, this free annual event is spread right across North Wales with studios taking part in Gwynedd, Conwy, Flintshire, Denbighshire and Wrexham. It presents a unique chance for visitors to peek behind the scenes, experience this normally hidden world and get to chat to the artists and crafts people about their creative process and their studio spaces. Helfa Gelf mentions:
“Helfa Gelf Art Trail is a fantastic opportunity for people to gain a real understanding of what goes into creating something. This year we are celebrating Helfa Gelf ’10 Years’ it will be our biggest and best yet. We think it is fantastic that the public are becoming more discerning and buying unique things that are produced in North Wales. It is such a boost to the local economy,” says Dawn Worsley project co-ordinator for the Helfa Gelf Art Trail.

In March this year the local community was angered to learn that Wrexham Council was proposing to close Vic Studios. On hearing this, a protest group was formed, awareness-raising events were held and petitions opposing the closure were presented to the Council.

 

Opened in 2006, Vic Studios is an essential part of the Wrexham music scene. Its rehearsal and recording facilities have helped launch the careers of many local bands and solo artists including current successes, Neck Deep.

 

Less well known, but equally important, is the vital role Vic Studios plays in providing training, rehabilitation and education for vulnerable children and disengaged young people with a wide range of behavioural, educational and social health needs. Jack, who has Aspergers Syndrome, was referred to Vic Studios when he was 15. Now 18, he still uses the facility and is clear on its value. “The time I spent there has had a big impact on my skills and I am much more confident now,” he says. Jack’s mother, Nicki, is pleased that Vic Studios has a future, “Wrexham can’t afford to lose such innovative support for its children” she says.
